Not sure how long I'll be on, but stop by and see what's up.
  • Listening to: Beatie Boys - Aglio e Olio
Hopefully things will actually pick up here. I've been trying to work my way out of a long-term creative funk and I think there's some progress. This weekend I attended the Motor City Fur Con and had a good time. Met up with some cool people and spent way too much money.

The Rupelli comic will resume shortly. It's posted up to page 27 currently, and I'm calling that chapter 1. Page 28 will start a new chapter, with some fun things happening.

Been doing some custom car models for Trackmania 2 lately, learning more about polygon modeling and generally screwing around with odd car designs. If anyone wants to sit in on a boring session of me pushing vertices around, I'll be streaming on and off in the next couple days. I'll update my status here when I'm online. Hope to see you there.

As soon as I got started drawing the next pages for the comic, I realized I needed a good reference for Veronica's house interior. After digging up a pile of reference photos and a rough floor plan I started modeling her house. So, if I can keep my computer running long enough, that'll be the next thing(s) I post here.

Joe :iconradioswim: is coming over shortly for a drawing session. These have been working great lately and hopefully we get some good stuff done tonight as well.

The object of these weekly-ish sessions is that instead of drawing from life, we watch a movie and pause it whenever we want to draw what's on the screen. Either of us can hit pause, and both have to draw what's on the screen. Give it a shot sometime, it's a fun way to draw some stuff you normally might not draw.

Stay tuned,
-Brian

Just thought I'd update this thing so you know I haven't abandoned everyone.

I've been slogging through a creative funk for the last several months. The next page of the comic is mostly done, and has been since July. The inks look great, I just need to build up the motivation to shade it. I've also been poking at the story here and there, so hopefully it'll be worth reading when I get around this mental block.

Thanks for continuing to stop by and there will be new stuff soon!

My buddy Joe :iconradioswim: is working on a graphite commission at my place and will be streaming on my account. We'll both be here, so tune in and say hi.

First off, hit this and crank it up: www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_1qpM…

The comic is progressing at its usual glacial pace. Page 28 is 90% sketched and I'm very happy with it. Look forward to that some time in the next week. Still planning on wrapping up the chapter and taking a short hiatus from posting it so I can focus on writing and sketching things ahead of time. Probably three or four pages before that. Also, there's some other art projects I desperately need to get to.

This should be fairly revealing. And this is NOT meant to be a diss or anything to people that are more into it than I am. Seriously, it's not. It's just interesting to see the response of someone that's just a comic artist and not a lifestyler. Statistics and stuff, you know.

How weird is that?

In other news, page 26 is obviously late, but coming along finally. Page 27 is one-third sketched and looking good. Stay tuned.

Warming up some clay in the oven for my next clay endeavor, a Veronica maquette. This should be interesting. The Marcello version is coming along inexplicably well. Is it a fluke? Can I repeat it? Let's find out.

Going to set the sculpture aside, clean up a bit and work on the comic.

My sleeping schedule is pretty jacked lately, so why not fire up a late-ish stream to work on a pic?

Whew, the final batch of renderings for the freelance job is now crunching away on my work pc. Many thanks to :icontigerknightcomics: for the VNC suggestion! Total lifesaver to be able to log in from home and do things. I even started a rendering using my phone, in bed :D

I'm going to start a stream at 9 tonight. I'll be working on the shading and stuff for Rupelli, page 24.

Playlist: My favorites of the 90s.

I need a break. This job I've been working on modeling and rendering is wiping me out. A few days ago, I was in the office for 18 hours. Several nights in the last week, I've been here until at least 5am.

I was meaning to do a Livestream session tonight and work on Rupelli, pages 24 & 25. Unfortunately, the freelance job I've been working on hit a snag with a last-minute round of changes. Fortunately, I figured out batch rendering with Maxwell Render, so once things are set, I can just let it run.

So tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon and/or night, I'm going to get my Livestreaming in to celebrate getting this thing off my desk. I'll post an update when I figure out what's happening.

Okay, maybe that's overselling it a bit, but it is pretty cool. Ever wonder how much heat is generated when you draw on paper with a graphite pencil? I'd say around 5 degrees, Fahrenheit. After playing around for a while with an infrared thermal imaging camera, I turned it to a sheet of paper and started drawing. Here's the result:



:edit: Wooo, Youtube embedding!
Starting a Livestream session momentarily. I've got page 24 mostly sketched, so I'll be finishing that and hopefully inking it.

Soundtrack: I'm going to start with some Darediablo and go from there.

I'll be working on my comic later, so I might as well stream it since I've got the rig working good. I know there's a lot of streams going on lately, but feel free to stop and say hi.

Stream playlist: Meat Beat Manifesto discography :o

Tune in here: www.livestream.com/brianrogers

Got most of page 24 sketched, so not bad. Still needs the last panel, then inks. I'll probably do that tomorrow if I have time.
  • Listening to: Meat Beat Manifesto
Figured I should do a test-run of the new camera rig, so I'm going to be working on page 25 of Rupelli. I'll probably start about 10:00EDT.

Tonight's playlist will be a collection of lesser-known acid/psychedelic rock.
